Most reviews that have the words, “At first glance it may seem as if Office 2013 doesn’t offer much that’s new…” end with the concept that there’s really something new and fancy about the newest release.

The screens have been streamlined to make work more productive
There are new, slick charts in Excel
Not sure that’s enough for some businesses.
